Does your key have a chip on it? If so its a VATS (Vehicle Anti Theft System) key. Most likely the lock cylinder needs replacing. HTH. -Jim

You have the Passkey system. It uses a transponder key. If you're using a new key it'll have to be programmed into the car's security system for it to work. If you're using the same key as always and it's doing this your problem most likely is the anti-theft module. HTH. -Jim
